Starting December 1, 2018, it will be illegal for parents to buy their kids Christmas gifts. In studies conducted over the past three years, doctors have concluded that parents tend to spend too much money on Christmas presents every year.
The leading doctor for the studies, Dr. Fil, decided that this is a global problem that needs fixing.
“This is a rising problem throughout the U.S. that we hope to fix by applying this new law,” said Dr. Bert Albert Andrews.
The average family spends more than $1000 every year for Christmas. This has caused a lot of controversy and made a lot of people angry. With this new law coming into action, anyone found guilty will have to pay a costly fine.
“We decided that since this is a major problem, we will make the fine very costly, $5000,” said Dr. Sym Tom.
Anyone breaking this law could face up to a year in prison.
“I believe that this new law will not only fix the U.S. but eventually the entire world,” said John McFeira.
Authorities hope that by giving a warning, the number of people spending so much over the holidays will be reduced.
